What film is this? ?

An old black and white film. The cast is trapped in a prison. They escape using hang gliders at the end, and if I remember correctly, they use a stage production to cover up the making of their hang glider from the guards. Mostly male cast. 

That's all I can remember. If anybody can tell me what film this is, I'd be super grateful.

    Those movies already listed sound like the movie you're looking for but those movies are in color. The Colditz Story (1955) is in black & white, however, it's an accurate version of one of the many escapes from Colditz during WW2. Two prisoners did build a glider there but the war ended before they used it. Here's an actual photo of the glider.
